Despite Saurik’s decision to shut down the Cydia Store, the jailbreak community is still running strong. New jailbreak tweaks are continuously being published in Cydia and are readily available for you to download.
This roundup will encompass all the jailbreak tweaks we’ve shown you this week, from Monday, December 17th to Sunday, December 23rd. As usual, we’ll kick things off by discussing our favorites and then outline the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
Asteroid – FREE
If you’re searching for a way to augment the weather-telling experience on your jailbroken iPhone, then look no further then Asteroid. As the developer puts it, Asteroid is the spiritual successor to popular previous releases like Forecast and Meteor.
Asteroid brings animated weather-centric wallpapers, Lock screen weather-centric greetings, and a live Weather app icon to your jailbroken handset. Everything can be customized to your heart’s content, and you can trick your device out far better than someone without a jailbreak could ever dream of.
You can learn more about Asteroid and how it works in our full review.
LSPullToDismiss – FREE
To invoke the gesture, simply pull down on the Lock screen; this will dismiss all pending notifications from the interface and make it look clean and clutter-free again.

NightShade EARLY ACCESS – $2.00
Nightshade EARLY ACCESS is a final beta version of a high-end, all-in-one wystem-wide Dark Mode for the iOS platform. And yes, that’s exactly what it sounds like.
Rather than installing a bevy of different Dark Mode tweaks and having a fragmented expreience, Nightshade aims to be a one-stop-shop solution for your needs. It themes just about any app, your notifications and widgets, and even the Safari web view.
